Felda 50 Years Celebration

Established with the primary intention of eradicating poverty and developing the federal land, Felda has achieved notable accomplishments over the years. It was 50 years ago when Felda started developing 811,140 hectares of land area with the help from 104,946 settles. In fact Felda's knack for managing the world's biggest oil palm estate has contributed to making Malaysia known to the world.

Starting out with rubber and oil palm plantation as its core focus, Felda has since moved onwards by diversifying its economic activities to include manufacturing, services, engineering, transportation, shipping, construction, information technology and communication, retail, tourism, herbs, security and catering. After 50 years of success, Felda is now ready to achieve further accomplishments for the next 50 years.

Cultivating the Seeds of Success (30 sen stamp)

The theme of the stamp is 'Cultivating the Seeds of Success'. The images of oil palm and rubber trees are to signify Felda's major plantation commodities which have helped Felda achieve its success.

Nation Building (50 sen stamp)

The theme of the stamp is 'Toward A Better Life'. The bungalow house is a true depiction of Felda's latest development in creating a housing settlement often referred to as Felda Jaya. The background features the original houses for settlers, a view of a typical settler's village and an aerial view of an oil palm estate; the main commodity that helped to enhance the quality of life of Felda's settlers.

Forging Success (RM1 stamp)
